How weird is this (possibly not at all)

A boy at Mia's school is named Anakin. Is that weird or am I just square? Is that like naming your kid Adolf or Pol Pot or something?

  • Well, I would not go as far as to link "Anakin" to Adolf or Pol Pot... no, I think Lucifer is more appropriate. See, like Anakin, Lucifer was an angel. Albeit, one who fell far from grace. Thusly, they were given new titles. Perhaps that also makes their former monikers anathema as well. I dunno.

    I think that "Anakin" would go more towards symbolising hope... like the hope Quigon (or however you spell the name Liam had in Episode 1) had for the young boy.

    Anywho... it IS kinda strange though. Why Anakin? How geeky can you get? I mean, why not a normal name like Gleep or Ookla?

  • I agree with John that it is more geeky than evil--like having a Star Trek/Star Wars themed wedding. Maybe the parents dressed up like Han & Leia for the nuptials? Hmmmm...The groomsmen could be Storm Troopers...best man...Obi Wan. Maybe some Ewoks in place of flower girls...the possibilities are endless!!!

    Somehow, I think weddings are nerve wracking enough without worrying about how I would look in the gold bikini!

  • I must say, those parents should be rammed with a light saber.
